congressional correspondent dana bash. dana, is that the sense you get that somehow we should be optimistic about whatever it is that's going on? >> you know, as we talked about before, you definitely get a feeling or the atmosphere here is that there is progress being made but in the same breath, but, there are still thingsing to worked out. as we wait for what we generally see when the senate opens which is the pledge of allegiance, a prayer and so forth, if you see the bottom of your screen, i'm not sure if you can see it, white hair, that is harry reid, the senate majority leader. it may be we will hear an update from him. maug maybe we should listen to th the. >> prayer. >> let us feel your presence today on capitol hill, as we gather with so much work left undone, guide our lawmakers with your wisdom. lord, show them the right thing to do and give them the courage to do it. be their shelter in the midst of the storm, regardless of how high the waters rise. when they feel exhausted, remind them of the great sufficiency of your grace. look with favor on our nation and save us from self-
and losers for 2013. >> good question. great to have you both on the show. dana, retailers saw the weakest holiday sales since 2008. a lot of things being thrown at the american consumer, the tragedy in connecticut, sandy, fiscal cliff, everything. with that in mind where do you see consumer spending, consumer discretionary spending next year? >> i think in 2013 there's always a place that excels in consumer discretionary and it's based on product, price and where they can expand in terms of channel extension. in 2013 i think we'll see names like nordstrom where they are accelerating the rate of growth. i think we'll see urban outfitters continue their turnaround, perhaps in an accelerated pace in 2013, and i think you're going to continue to see, particularly in the first half of the year, the demand for products from michael kors do well. second half of the year is a different story and perhaps the turnaround of tiffany's to be the name for the second half. >> meantime, r.j., i think you would agree retail remembers scrambling right now because consumer confidence is plunging. three repo
hopefully to come up with some kind of deal. dana bash is flling this on capitol hill. i imagine we're all working over the holidays and i fess we're going to be working as long as they are working. hopefully they're going to get something done. we heard from house speaker john boehner earlier today. where is this? clearly it looks like now it's in the senate's hands. >> that's right. it is absolutely in the senate's handings, has been effectively since the house speaker failed to pass his so-called plan b proposal last week. and so what is going on behind the scenes right now, suzanne, is the senate democratic leader is trying to figure out if he can cobable together enough votes, which would mean he would have to have probably significant crossover to get some votes to at least pass the bear bare minimum to ahouseholds with incomes of less than $200,000. >> the speaker has just a few days left to change his mind but i have to be very honest, mr. president. i don't know time-wise how it can happen now. >> so there's a time issue because we're only five days away, but most importantly ther
in our congressional correspondent dana bash. dana, i was just sitting here imagining someone turning on their tv thinking, what a these people talking about? and i think i would sort of boil it down to this. when they are talking on the floor, that's never a good sign. they should be talking in a back room. they have gotten nowhere. we are where we are and nobody has agreed on to come up with something. >> reporter: that is right, candy. this is the kind of stuff that we watch and people who watch c-span watch but people who are really tuning in to find out what matters to them, which is are their taxes going to go up in five days got a pretty good idea of why they are so deadlocked. blue slip, which is a question of process, tax bills, can can they start in the house or the senate, and as you said, talking about the history of where things went wrong. but that's not what people want to know. people want to know what's going to happen going forward and they really got their answer, which is, it is tied up in knots. what has been talked about behind the scenes -- and the president act
dana telsey and began by asking what happened. >> i think there were a confluence of events, extra long season. hurricane sandy. tragedy in ct. >> none of the events out there were feel good factor events. it was all for consumer morale. >> when you look at the weakness this holiday season, how much of the blame do you put on retailers for not having inspiring merchandise and how much of it are just factors beyond their control like the economy and the fiscal cliff? >> i think overall it was more probably 70 to 80% factors beyond the retailer's control. i think retailers had creative merchandise but i think the news didn't lead to a feel good factor. >> in any economy, good or bad, you always have some winners. who did really well this year? >> well, it looks like in terms of who did well so far, companies like american eagle outfitters limited, michael cors, macy's' tj and i would say costco was also a winner. >> on the flip side were there retailers that you had high hopes for going into the season but just didn't deliver in the end. >> certainly we will see some becoming more promoti
is telling us no, that is not the case. i got jessica yellen standing by and we have dana barb who is standing by and they are there on capitol hill. what is the mix up between sending a plan and not sending a plan by the president? >> hi, john. the bottom line is both sides want to take action and before senat senator mcconnell decides whether to filibuster the measure and whether the other republicans in the party will filibuster, they have to see the details in the proposal. will there be an estate tax provision? how will unemployment which is expected to be extended? will it be paid for? what spending measures will be in this and spending cuts, etc. there will be more details spelled out and where will that come from? will it come from a phone call and staff here at the white house and spelled out by the staff of the senate majority leader harry reid. all that was is yet to be determined. perhaps senator connell's office believes it will come from different sources and there is a lot of potential for confusion with such little time left and so much pressure on the line. dana mi
, dana. "cnn newsroom" with carol costello starts right now. >>> twas the day before christmas, and malls around the country expected to be packed. millions of last-minute shoppers scurrying to stores to finish their shopping list. are you one of them? plus this. >> shame on the nra! ban assault weapons now! >> remember her? she disrupted a live statement by the national rifle association. how did she sneak past that big sign -- how did she sneak that big sign past all that security? we'll ask her live. >>> politicians, dignitaries, and even a musician. cnn tallies your votes for the most intriguing person of the year and counts them down for u and a small kid making a big difference. this little girl wins a trip of a lifetime to paris, and her actions after that get support from the whole community. >> dear santa, i'm gabriela, the one with the tumor. this is my motto, and i think you should use it too. you might have a bad day today, but there's always a bright star to look forward to tomorrow. >> hear what she did to help dozens of other children fulfill their wishes.

of tax hikes and spending cuts due to start just five days from now. dana bash is in washington. great to see you. within the past hour, senate majority leader harry reid spoke on the floor. he really gave it to john boehner. he got pretty personal. >> he did. he really laid the blame at boehner's lap. talked about the fact that he was surprised that the house isn't even in session, which is true, but let's get real. the senate came back into session this morning. most importantly, he was very, very pessimistic about getting anything done before we reach that fiscal cliff. listen to what he said. >> the speaker just has a few d days left to change his mind, but i have to be very honest, mr. president. i don't know time wise how it can happen now. >> let me kind of lay out the state of play. i'll try to keep it out as much as possible. this is something everybody is focused on. the ball is in the senate's court right now. so what senator reid, who you saw earlier, and the president, what they are trying to figure out is whether or not they can craft what the president called a scaled-ba

with members on stand-by to return. senior congressional correspondent dana bash is following all of it for us. what are you hearing? >> there was a conference call of course members of the house leadership even, they're back in their districts, but there was a conference call today among those house republican leaders trying to figure out if and when the house should come back into session. two republican sources tell me they did not make a decision on this call. it's still up in the air. and a big reason for that is if anything can get done in the next six days, the ball is in the senate's court. the capitol is a ghost town. neither chamber in session. an eerie calm since the fiscal cliff only congress has the power to avert is less than one week away. from their home, senate democratic leaders is trying to figure out if the president's scaled back bill can pass congress at the 11th hour. >> there is absolutely no reason, none, not to protect these americans from a tax hike. at the very least, let's agree right now on what we already agree on. let's get that done. >> reporter: but to get tha
confidence turned down for the first time in a long time. here is something ta dana bash got, where she said, republican told her, some senate democrats have discussed holding on on bringing up a proposal until the final final days of 2012, which we happen to be in at the moment. to increase pressure on republicans to support avoiding higher taxes on everyone due to the fiscal cliff. >> the clock is running down. now is the moment. and all i can tell you, we have had various groups, the gang of six, the gang of eight. people meeting, talking, i've had multiple conversations since getting back yesterday. i just don't believe it in the senate. i absolute believe if it were up to the senate democrats and republicans, we would get this done. the problem is, unfortunately, with the extreme element insist the house, for whatever reason the speaker won't act. even when something like the reform farm bill to eliminate subsidies which everybody agree should be eliminated. we can't get them to that i that out. so frustrating that we send things over that are bipartisan that do make cuts and to ask tho
